The scheduled upgrade was completed and Blackboard was brought back online at approximately 3 pm on Friday, May 28. Blackboard Learn 9.1 is now available for the entire campus community to use. DoIT will be continuing to work on a variety of minor modifications over the next few days. However, this work should not impact the ability of the campus community to access courses or communities. Preliminary documentation on getting started with Bb Learn 9.1 has been posted for instructors/ leaders and will be expanded on through the summer.

Thank you for your patience during this upgrade period.
